I hate typesetting too. Here's the third chapter.

I finally decided to skim through read some typesetting guides because I started to stumble with fonts. I did the previous two chapters just by doing whatever felt best. And it seems I was mostly right. Only thing that changed is that now I put periods and commas at the end of a text block (feels unnecessary, but whatever).

I also had to find two new fonts to use for some parts, since in the Japanese version the fonts gave a vastly different feeling than the normal ones. This might have been the hardest part of doing this chapter. Most fonts just look the same, and those that don't are some sort of weird fonts that probably nobody ever used.

I might go back to the previous chapters to improve them once I have a bit more experience. I'm already aware about some other minor issues.

I gave myself some liberty in decorating the "status" display just like I did in the web novel, since otherwise it's hard to read. I hope it doesn't come to bite me in the arse, but I just don't like how the original status is presented.

It's actually amazing just how many times you can do an editing pass and still find stuff to improve. I'm editing the corresponding web novel chapters as I do the manga and it really is interesting going back and feeling like I'm reading something that may as well have been written by someone else.
